This was our view from our veranda! Does this seem like a balcony view? Oce
We felt this is an obstructed view from our balcony. What do you think? We

Let me first begin by saying this was our 3 rd. Oceania cruise and the itinerary and staff was wonderful. We enjoyed all the ports we visited and the staff was warm, friendly and professional.

The food on the ship was very good, but being a small Oceania ship...there were only 2 speciality restaurants. As we got into cooler temperatures, the outdoor area of the buffet was closed, so it was very difficult to find a seat for breakfast. People don't really share tables at breakfast for some reason and the staff doesn't encourage that.

We had very interesting excursions and experienced many great sites.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Cabin A1

Now let me say that cabin 6001 was misrepresented as a concierge veranda cabin. It has an obstructed view which both our wonderful travel agent and I were not made aware of. There was a large angled metal front to our deck which eliminated whatever limited view of the ocean we had and the machinery and anchors were right in front of our veranda. This affected our privacy and the noise from the anchors was not what we signed up for. Now some people might like watching the crew dock everyday and some evenings...it was interesting ONCE...but everyday...no, no. Especially when you couldn't enjoy your balcony.

Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

we've been there.

Boston

We did Boston on our own because Oceania cancelled our trip to JFK Library for some reason. Saved $400. So we took an uber to JFK library and enjoyed our day. Oceania broke my suitcase...so had to uber to Macy's to get a new one.
